“Mr Deering's Legacy”
Reviewed February 3, 2012

With a wonderful group of volunteers, the Friends of Deering Oaks have made a big impact in an iconic city park. Make certain to visit the Castle. Ducks in the summer and ice skating in the winter. Plus a Rose Garden. And there is a wonderful if crowded -- for Maine -- Farmers Market on Saturday mornings.
Still, it would be great to get the cars out of the park on the cut throughs.

“Great park with lots to do”
Reviewed July 2, 2006

I am fortunate to live right down the street from this park. Not only does it have a huge duck pond, but there's a free little water park section for kids to play.
